Regulation of development by nutrition and by the somatotrophic and thyroid axes in the neonatal pig


, : Regulation of development by nutrition and by the somatotrophic and thyroid axes in the neonatal pig. Livestock Production Science 66(2): 121-131

The neonatal period is a particularly critical stage during which the long-term development of the individual can be affected. The rapid somatic growth is accompanied by tremendous anatomical, physiological and chemical composition changes. This period is also associated with dramatic changes in the endocrine system which plays a central role in the control of metabolism and growth. This review focuses primarily on the somatotrophic and thyroid axes.
